Hair Fair 2016 – To Dance with Familiars

LadyLight Koolhoven - Pixel Mythos - To Dance with Familiars - 1

One of my favorite things is to take fantasy elements and try to make them work for my ethnic looks. I get saddened when I see written content, blatantly stating that certain genres of characters should only be of certain body types and skin tones. I will admit, that before coming an official blogger for the Medieval & Fantasy Grid Crier group, my styles fell in 3 categories. Modern, Bumble Bee/Panda or Drow. When I was a drow, I was often the dark ashen skin colour. My Bumble Bee and Panda Girl looks were always with my regular dark toned skin. I will admit that I would go ethnically asian every once in a while. There was one skin maker in particular that I enjoyed, so would get her stuff for kicks every once in a while. I don’t tend to like looking at the traditional geisha looks on dark skin, that does seem really odd to me. I will wear other asian inspired clothing as I normally am though.

This is just random blabbery, for no particular reason. I haven’t been bashed or anything.

I took these shots at one of my favorite places in second life. It’s called The Outer Garden, and they just completed a reworking of 2 of their garden levels. So I decided to go exploring.  I fell in love with this one little area off the main track, and decided to do a mini, on location shoot for today’s post.

Adoness is at Hair Fair this year, with 3 new styles. I chose to show you my favorite of the selections, which made me feel all warrior woman. It is a mixed mesh style, with the braid being rigged, but the upper part of the hair being modifiable, which is super nice if you like wearing mesh heads. I just used the default shaved hairbase in the hud of my Catwa head, and tinted it to make sense with the hair.

A portion of all hairs sold at Hair Fair go to Wigs for Kids, so even if you don’t pick up this Adoness style, it is worth it to take a browse of the whole event.

Monday Eyeful – Nelly Eyes by Arise

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Arise

This week on Monday Eyeful, I am showing you a discounted event pack from the Buy Now sale. Arise is taking part in this new project, for how much longer Buy Now will be around, I am not sure. There is currently some drama going on in the designer/event organizer realm of the event. I am not sure how many more round there will be. For now, you can visit the event in a very simple fashion, all you do is visit SL Marketplace, then type in “Buy Now” in search. All the participants will pop up(along with some other random stuff).

The current offering from Arise are called Nelly Eyes.

They are priced L$119 for a pack of 10 colourations. These are discounted, as the normal eyes in the shop normally range from L$59 to L$89 per colour. System and Mesh versions are included in the pack.

.ARISE. Nelly Eyes for BUY NOW

Get this awesome deal while you still can, new round starts June 1st.

Adoness is at the current round of Thrift Shop, which ends tonight. I already blogged the wonderful discount dresses on Free*Style, but as with all Thrift Shops, there is a whole slew of Gachas. My necklace is just one of Adoness’ gacha items. This Gacha in particular comes with these necklaces, with various gems, but also has a forehead adornment that matches, which you can also win.

I’m also wearing a few things from Plastik. They always seem to be in all the things, haha. You will find the new Trellion earrings at N21, as part of a jewelry set, which you can pick up in one of 5 metals.

You will find my horns at the Fantasy Collective. They come in a few sizes, and are fully hudded, so you can switch to match any outfit.

Monday Eyeful – Venus Eyes by S0NG

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - S0NG

This week on Monday Eyeful, I visited the Hantai Fair, because come on, TENTACLES!!! There are so many, I was in my glory. Also, there happens to be a large amount of eyes up for grabs at the fair, which always makes me come running. S0NG is there with new eyes, and they still have me guessing as to why they are named what they are. They sort of look like they have snow, not sparkles, but snow, falling inside them. Like a little storm trapped in your eye. I always have such a hard time choosing what colour I want(and often go back for more month later, haha).

These are called called Venus, and have a good mix of colours to choose from.

They are priced L$50 per colour. System and Mesh versions are included in the pack.

Stix has some Limited Editions in their store right now. Hera is the base skinline, in a wonderful goth makeup. There are 4 tones to choose from. I am wearing the Drow tone, but my second favorite is the Snow. Stix always comes with all the appliers possible, I would really be surprised if you can’t make it work for your own mesh collection.

Grab your favorite while you can, they are only L$99 per tone!
